UK High Court Rejects Nirav Modi’s Plea to Appeal

A UK High Court on Wednesday rejected Nirav Modi’s application to appeal against his extradition to India.

New Delhi: Fugitive diamond merchant, Nirav Modi, accused of defrauding Punjab National Bank (PNB) of around $2 billion (Rs 14,000 crore), had lodged an appeal in the London high court last month.

The appeal was before a High Court judge for a decision “on the papers” submitted for the appeal to determine if there are any grounds for an appeal against the Home Secretary’s decision or the Westminster Magistrates Court February ruling in favour of Nirav Modi’s extradition to India to face charges of fraud and money laundering.
